JAT Jot # 16: July 2022

JAT Jot

Here in July 2022 to let you know three things:

1) We should be back on the terrestrial airwaves this month

2) This month’s Patreon bonus segment is about the origins of Quorum character names.

3) This month, we need you to go to https://www.podcastawards.com/ and nominate “Quorum” in the Fiction category for the People’s Choice Podcast Awards.

It’s time for the People’s Choice Podcast Award Nominations!

Okay, the JAT Phone technically isn’t a thing, but if it was, it’d look something like this:

Will you answer the call?

Why’s it ringing? Because the 2022 People’s Choice Podcast Awards are upon us and we need your help!

What can you do?

  1. Go to the Podcast Awards website
  2. Register for free (this allows you to nominate now and potentially vote on finalists later).
  3. Nominate “Quorum” in the “Fiction” category.

But please take the time to do it now! The nomination period and the registration deadline to be able to vote on the finalists is Sunday, July 31st, 2022!


In case you want some screenshots, here you go.

First go to the Podcast Awards website. You should see a screen that has a blue box for nominating podcasts:

After you click on the blue box, you’ll be taken to a registration page:

Don’t forget to check that checkbox near the bottom about being randomly selected to vote on the final slate in August! Hopefully, Quorum will be among the finalists.

Once you’re registered, you can log in and see the categories listed alphabetically, so you’ll likely need to scroll down to see “Fiction” and select Quorum. Feel free to nominate shows in other categories you’re interested in, but you don’t need to nominate someone in all the categories.

Once you’re sure of your selection, you can click the “save” button at the bottom of the screen and it will lock in those categories you selected. You can always come back and add nominations, but we don’t know of a way for you to unlock your saved nominations, so take your time.

Then, we wait for news of whether we’ve made the cut.

Thank you all so much for your support and we hope to have good news in August!

Broadcast Schedule On Hold for June

For all our listeners who like to tune into WERA every Sunday at 4pm ET, we have some bad news: we’ll be off the air for the month of June.

Our “home base” radio station is doing some much-needed maintenance and upgrades, so all the pre-recorded programs will be off until June 30th.

You should be able to hear us again on Sunday, July 3rd.

“Prince Prigio” Receives Multiple TIVA Awards

2020 was a transformative year for us as we needed to adapt to trying to do large cast audio dramas remotely (preferring the old school everyone-in-the-same-room approach has served us well). Our first large-scale attempt at this was with a six-part adaptation of “Prince Prigio” for our anthology series Through the Looking Glass.

We’re pleased to announce that the cast and crew’s hard work has been recognized as we received not one, but three TIVA Peer Awards at this year’s ceremony:

  • Peer Bronze: Web Series (Through the Looking Glass)
  • Peer Silver: Acting Voice Over – Audio Narration, Male (Bjorn Munson)
  • Peer Gold: Sound Mixing (William R. Coughlan)
